Before you read on, http://archive.org/details/forums.gamespy.comArchive is more complete and recent. You can also find these browsable at http://gamespy-archives.quaddicted.com/forums/

This is a backup of all the forums on http://forumplanet.gamespy.com/
Most of these are abandoned, without moderation and some have been badly hit by spam. Judging by IGN's heartless deletion of for example all the hosted user sites from their Planet network and with that deleting a decade of gaming history, it is safe to assume that these forums won't live much longer. So we set out to do some quick and simple archiving.
Inside each 7z is one of the forums. Wget was used with the following options:
--adjust-extension --convert-links --page-requisites -X PrivateMessages -X Static
There is a lot of duplicate content inside. The software served 2-3 URLs per topic page. Those were NOT removed.
Most of the archives contain a --no-verbose wget log, some unfortunately only have partial logs.
Some of the forums had infinite loops because non-existing bad user-supplied links like forum/path/http;// were not 404'd. Those were then removed manually after the crawl.
GameSpy Forums & GameSpy Comrade are both /gamespy/
